Challenge Your Assumptions

The least questioned assumptions are often the most questionable." ~ Paul Broca

You are likely holding on to unproven assumptions that are standing in the way of living your dream life. Whether you want a promotion (but assume your boss does not understand your work), start a business (but assume it will take too much money), or become a writer (but are assuming no one will like your writing) you are lettings assumptions stand in the way of the life you crave.

In this week's episode we discuss the importance of challenging every assumption by asking questions and doing the research to find out the facts. We talk about the false ideas we had when we first chose to travel and how we overcame then.

In addition, we are joined by psychologist and coach Karen Sargent, who escaped the corporate world to live life on HER terms. She's written an ebook called The Art of Making Big Dreams Happen, which you can find on her website for free. Karen shares her insights and tips to help you challenge these assumptions and unlock the life you dream about.

That's right we're spending some time, as we do every year, to discuss what has gone well in our relationship, what we'd like to see more of, and determining if we are ready to commit to another year. Listen as we discuss the process and provide advice and suggestions to use for your own annual renewal.

We are then joined on the show by Dr. Amy Johnson to discuss how to talk about challenging issues with your partner. We dive into the importance of open communication to create a healthier and happier relationship and how it all ties into to a regular renewal of your commitment to each other. [NOTE: the recording with Dr. Amy has a couple of points where the audio breaks up slightly and we've done our best to clean it up to ensure you can capture all her great advice.]
